(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A samoke of unknown material weighs 300N in air and 200N when immersed in alcohol of specific gravity 0.7. Find the volume and density of the material

2. Relevant equations

Specific Gravity = density of material/density of water

Density fluid x volume of fluid x gravity = density material x volume of material x gravity

3. The attempt at a solution

Volume of substance = Density of Fluid x Volume of fluid / Density of material

The density of the substance can be using the specific gravity equation.

I am not sure how to solve for the volume and density though
